Received my switches today. Checked the box and all looks great. May be a little bit before I install, going to let my kids go through the stack of boxes in my office for Christmas presents.


Is there a cubby replacement for the other side of the 6 switch setup ? Do not see that in the box, and will need that to complete the installation. Will look at the installation manual later.

Thanks
This picture is from an Ebay seller that has these same switch panels available (...for ~$350!!!)

I have received mine and opened the box and looked and was pretty happy but havent had time to do the install yet. I was planning on attempting the install with the single cubby, I dont really see a reason why I would need to switch them out unless I wanted to ensure the switch panel was "contained", but that might become more obvious when I get around to installing. Duck season is killing all my free time right now..

I've been buying from Discount Tire Direct for over a decade. They're doing the best Black Friday sale I've ever seen this year.

Have you looked at the HikeIt Throttle control? I researched throttle controllers and eventually picked up the HikeIt. It’s about half the price of the PC and is a little more advanced in software/chip performance. I will say that it woke up the throttle response on my JT!

Thanks! I ordered one and installed two days ago. Super impressed with the improved response of the pedal for $118 shipped!

I've been looking at these types of devices. I was leaning towards the PC for the simple fact I didn't need to have a display stuck to the dash and I could use my phone, but $118 is really tempting.

How big is the hikeit control panel and do you have any pictures of your installation?

Have you guys noticed any major changes in fuel economy?

Thanks!

Thanks, that's actually a lot smaller than I thought.

I've been buying from Discount Tire Direct for over a decade. They're doing the best Black Friday sale I've ever seen this year.
I was actually pretty disappointed by their black Friday offerings this year. Each year the discount seems to be going down.

This is the pre-black friday thread for 2020 but I think it was 10% back in a prepaid card for BF as well:

https://www.jeepgladiatorforum.com/forum/threads/early-black-friday-savings.36612/

2019 was up to a 15% rebate:

https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/2019-black-friday-tire-wheel-deals.41992/

2018 was a 20% rebate:

https://www.wranglerforum.com/threads/2018-black-friday-deals-on-tires-wheels-save-up-to-20.2340301/

Tire prices, like everything else, are inflated. I was waiting for this sale to order some new tires (which I did regardless) but I was hoping for a bit more.

Here is where I placed mine:

I have not had enough run time to determine fuel economy. I can say on the ECO mode, it is sluggish

This picture shows me that I need to clean some of the dust and dog hair out of Samson...

I will say that I would suggest buying the HIKEIT. I am impressed.
